Evergreen Magazine Spring 2013
Last fall, more than 3,000 Evergreen alumni participated in an economic impact study, which spells out many of the ways in which Evergreen has a positive financial, social and career impact on students, alumni, the community and the state. This research gives us one more way to make our case for the power of the Evergreen experience to educate engaged citizens and prepare students for tomorrow’s careers.
Our best case for Evergreen’s outstanding liberal arts education comes from the accomplishments of our alumni, students and faculty, like UMass-Amherst graduate student Thomas Herndon ’07, who discovered in April that the austerity movement is based on faulty math, and the Greeners in this issue who are making it in Silicon Valley, turning the music business on its head, or fighting hard for workers’ rights.
